Kiore et. al.,

Just installed the updated F@H Advanced Control (v7.6.21) and noticed that for the first time it is picking up my integrated Intel GPU on my i9-9900K CPU. It is listed in a folding slot as "gpu:0:2 Gen9p5/GT2 [UHD Graphics 630]" but status is "Disabled", and I am reluctant to try to get it fired up unless I can learn a little more. Have you heard anything about this? I looked in the Folding Forum but didn't see anything about folding on Intel integrated GPUs being a thing now.

Any insights appreciated!

Update #1... some additional info I just noticed from the F@H Log:
Code: Select all

20:18:34:WARNING:FS02:Disabling beta GPU slot 02: gpu:0:2 Gen9p5/GT2 [UHD Graphics 630].  Beta GPUs can be tested for no points by setting ``gpu-beta=true`` in the configuration.

Update #2... I found this in the Folding Forum under the GPU Stopped Working thread:
bruce wrote:The Intel GPUs are not supported yet. They are being tested by a select group of beta testers and we're waiting for their reports. Please disable FAH from using the Iris 630. You can set "Pause-on-start" to "true" for that device or you can disable it in the BIOS.

Update #3: One of the admins on Folding Forum replied to a question about this that I posted:
Joe_H wrote:There are a number of other topics asking about this, the short of it s that F@h does not currently have a separate development system for running tests on new hardware and WUs. So, several of the Intel iGPUs are enabled for internal testers to use with WUs from existing projects. The client is set to not enable them otherwise.

When the internal testing s done and they have worked out any problems, then these iGPUs may get enabled for beta testing at first. No idea how long this will take.
